The Fair Market Value (FMV) for vehicle information is foundational information that you need to provide a fair policy price to your customer. A simple ctrl-F (search) may have gotten you by lately but if don't want to get left behind by the megatrend of Digitalization, you need to level up your game.
Even if you want to go digital, the rigidness of the FMV from PIRA is really a huge roadblock:
- Filtering columns in the spreadsheet is almost a given but the current PIRA FMV reference file makes this an impossible task. How do you usually solve this? Do you hire another person to re-write the whole file in the format that you need? Then you need to watch out for human errors in that effort.
- Even in the reference PIRA FMV file, did you know that there are clerical errors in there as well? In the
published April 2021 PIRA FMV reference file, there are several errors.
- We counted 6 errors in the FMV value. An example would be the 2015 Hyundai Eon GLX 800cc Gas M/T Hatchback FWD 5-Seater. The reference file placed a wrong decimal point in the value of the vehicle. Yes, you might recognize this because you are human but your computer and business processes will only be as accurate as the data you feed it.
- We found 48 duplicate instances in the FMV values for the same car, how would you decide which is the correct FMV? Highlighted below is a sample duplicate which is for the Toyota HiAce Super Grandia Elite 2800cc Diesel A/T RWD Van 10-Seater. Do you want to try to find the other 47 instance that has duplicates in the PIRA FMV reference file? I'm sure you have better things to do, so just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to know this information.

- Have you turned away customers seeking a motor policy because their car is 8 years old or older? Maybe you did in frustration because your FMV information from PIRA is limited to the past seven years only.
- The current FMV does not differentiate the value between a car then is less driven than a car that has a lot of mileage at its back.
